Potty Training!

We started potty training Brayden a couple of weeks ago. The potty chair had been in the bathroom for a while, and he was always pulling at his wet diapers. Changing time was also becoming a bit of a screaming struggle. So we thought we would give it a shot. And the first couple of days went so well!
Our little Punkin' Head was so excited about his new big boy undies that he spent a good hour running around the living room and kitchen, shrieking with joy.
It makes me laugh just to look at these pictures.

By the end of the first day, he was running to the potty on his own when he had to "go". Then we had a change in plans with Grandpa Al's funeral and slapped the poor kid back in diapers.
It was a little confusing for him, but he was a good sport. We still try the potty, and have another weekend coming up, devoted just to potty trianing.

We've also been having cereal with milk. It's kinda messy, but worth the effort!
Cousin Lincoln turned one this last month, too.
We had a really fun time at the birthday party.

I even got to bake the birthday cake.
It was a six layer rainbow cake. YUM!

And there was a pinjata!

Everyone got a chance to whack it!

We also recieved a surprise visit from Super Baby!...I mean Super Toddler!

Don't let this picture fool you. Brayden is gearing up for a heated battle:
Twins vs. Rangers, September 4th.
Brayden will be wearing a Rangers hat (and a Twins shirt)
and new baby will be draped in Mamma's Twins shirt.
It's going to get ferocious around here!
We also had the new little baby's ultrasound this past friday,
and there is a good, healthy little one in there!
Ultrasound pictures coming soon!
